Nervousness can be state of tense and an uncomfortable feeling that disturbs anyone’s mind, stuffing brain with fear, doubts and anxiousness.in such conditions your entire body start to sweat and in worst condition body even shivers. And in modelling attending auditions, castings, and model shoots naturally produce nervousness due to the pressure to perform and the irresistible passion for accomplishing goals for succeeding. Every model has experienced a short period of nerves that rise the morning or evening before a potential opportunity. Here are some tips that will guide you how to control your anxious state effectively without it harming your career.
Begin with accepting that nervousness is a natural part of life. Preceding to an important photo-shoot or casting you will feel anxious but use this anxious energy for good rather than stressing that why you feel this way. Some models and actors believe that nervousness is good as the feeling makes you do well without becoming over confident. The worst pressure you can put on yourself is to believe that you are not ‘normal’ for feeling a positive way.
Do Deep Breathing
A deep breath is one of the important exercises to get away from stress and nervousness. Remember to breathe. Take deep breaths to calm you down and restore peace throughout the body. It will not cure anxiousness but will stop the overthinking, shakiness and sweating. Drink a glass of water and fill your lungs with oxygen to calm your nerves considerably. When people are scared and nervous it is easy to forget to breathe and think calmly. Some indulge in meditation or yoga to truly relax your mind and remove it from the stresses of modern living.
Keep Positive Thoughts
Don’t allow for your brain to wander into a negative state of mind. Negative thoughts will add to your anxiousness and allow for you to spiral out of control. Think about all the positive aspects of the experience and begin to feel excited about what lies ahead. Sometimes asking yourself ‘what is the worst that can happen?’ is also good as you realise that it is literally not the end of the world if you do not secure the casting this time.
Planning and Preparation
Feeling underprepared for the day ahead will certainly add to your nerves. Plan, practice and prepare as much as possible prior to the event. We can guarantee that you will begin to feel more relaxed as soon as you have prepared for the casting or photo-shoot. This may be planning your route to the location, practising some posing techniques or laying out your outfit. Find out what works for you.
After you are fully prepared, distract your mind via exercise, reading a book or listening to music. Choose a hobby that you thoroughly enjoy and distract your mind for the remainder of the evening or morning until you are ready to focus. Constantly, thinking about the event will make you more worried than necessary. Talking to a friend or relative is also a great way of releasing your energy.
